The University of Kent is now a top 30 institution according to the combined results of the UK’s university league tables.
Kent has moved up five places to be placed in 30th position in the annual Times Higher Education (THE) ‘Table of tables’.
The improvement follows hard on the heels of a rise of four places in last month’s Guardian 2012 University Guide, which saw Kent ranked 23rd out of 119 UK institutions.
Welcoming the latest rise in league table position, University of Kent Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Julia M Goodfellow said: ‘Kent’s position in this table of tables is very much due to a combination of excellent academic provision and high levels of student satisfaction.
‘As we prepare to enter a new era of university funding, where students increasingly see themselves as consumers, it is good to see that our position as one of the UK’s top universities is being reflected consistently across the different league tables.’
It is the first time the University of Kent has entered the top 30 in the THE ‘Table of tables’, which is now in its fourth year.
